Greenock Telegraph 5 September 1921-CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH SERVICE
Yesterday forenoon a special unveiling and dedication service of a Roll of Honour and Communion table was held in the Congregational Church, and was attended by a large congregation. There was special music for the occasion, and the sermon was preached by Rev. G. Paterson Graham (the minister).
In the course of his remarks Mr Graham said they were too near the "world catastrophe" to value aright all that their brave men had achieved for them, but ere long they would know the worth of their work; what was their contribution to the general good, and how by their sacrifice they forwarded the Kingdom of God. They would be compelled to look back over the path they trod. They were gone but were not lost to them, for the Master said that "He that loseth his life findeth it".


No other details are known.

This building apparently became the modern URC Church in Brown Street
